Vying for the support of New Hampshire voters, several Republican presidential contenders threatened Thursday to skip the Nevada caucuses if the state GOP sticks with jumping the line by moving its contest into early January.
The Republican National Committee raised more than $9 million in September as the party prepares to challenge President Obama next year.
"I'm only asking Nevada to go 72 hours back," he said during the interview into his office on Thursday. "If we have to have the primary before the end of the year, we will, to preserve and honor the tradition of the New Hampshire first-in-the-nation presidential primary and to comply with state law."
Mr. Gardner has full authority to set the state's primary date — something he said he has done eight times since 1976.
